The NAD is very excited to partner with three other organizations during this conference — Deaf In Government (DIG) will handle and take charge of Government Employment Training (GET); the National Deaf Education Conference (NDEC) will be hosting their third conference and will handle and take charge of the Education track; and the Registry of Interpreters (RID) Region I will handle and take charge of the Interpreting track. The rest of the tracks are the responsibility of the NAD.
